1. Promotions: Buying Shogun War 2 would have netted you several hats/items. Promotions like this are done often, where buying X game gets you certain items.


2. The Mann Co. Store. Almost all items are sold in the store, and many hats are. They do cost real money though.


3. Crates. Keys cost $2.50, but you can trade for keys to unlock said crates for the hopes of finding a hat.


4. Just playing: As you play, every so often there is a dice roll on when your next drop will be. Through playing (Or idling if you're inclined to do that) you can find many items randomly.

Buy them from the store, trade, or just wait the old fashion way.

Buy them.

Or buy a game that is on pre-order.

Either way you have to buy them.

Or wait for Valve to have a promotion and earn them. I did last December.

you can find them through random drops, you can craft them, or you could buy them.

you could also design a hat, submit it to valve, and if valve likes your design, you can get a community hat

Theres 4 real fun ways, (i'd say 3 haha)

the mann. co store, dropping which is really rare, trading with other users for your stuff, or crafting


3 refined metal=1 random hat

4 refined metal + 1 class token = random class hat

The easiest way to get hats is to just play the game without the desire to get hats. Eventually you will randomly find items and hats just for being in a server.

the easiest way is to join a server that buys the gift for every one in the server thats if you lucky if not try to find a nice friend to give you one, and last buy it
